What they’re saying

Stephanie Testi Circle

We hired Barefoot Dubai for our second sons newborn shoot. Our photographer, Sapphire & Ruth, the baby whisperer, set up in our living room and immediately made the whole family feel comfortable – even taking a few fun shots of our older son getting ready for his pictures. The best part for me was that they continued taking pictures of our newborn while the rest of us carried on with our day. If we’d been at a studio I would have been struggling to keep a 2 year old entertained the whole time but the whole process was effortless and even better, the pictures we received are beautiful! Very natural shots in our own home with our newest addition to the family! Highly recommend!! Stephanie

Meera Testi Circle

We booked our maternity and newborn shoots with the Barefoot team. Sapphire, the photographer, was so professional, friendly and gentle with our baby girl. I would highly recommend the team, the final images were absolutely stunning and I will definitely be booking more shoots with them. Good job team and be ready to receive more bookings from my family & friends! Meera


Our family love Barefoot, Alex and his team is very special to us, all the special moments of our small family growth is recorded in those beautifully and professionally taken photos, from my first pregnancy, hospital stay and my son’s first few days home to our second baby’s early days home all remembered forever in those photos. We have taken many studio, profile and lifestyle photos here and in home country, Barefoot is the best, I could see and feel the real care of Barefoot for each image taken, so patient and great with our little one, now I realise why Alex and Ruth’ business card designated ‘Baby Whisperer’, they are so great with babies, ‘Better than the mom I am’. Another important point all consumer wants is the transparency of the pricing, really no hidden charges, all beautifully taken photos are provided to us while as in the past, we had many occasions with other companies that each additional photo requires fees. Thank you Barefoot! Tyler, Cassie and family! Yvonne

Dalal testimonial

Thank you so much for the beautiful photos. Working with the photographer and her assistant was so easy and they were so sweet and I’m so happy with how the pictures turned out. Again, thank you. Dalal


Beautiful pictures – the photographer came with an assistant and was very hard working and helpful and we got some great shots. Claire

Nouf Testimonial

Thank you, the pictures are beautiful. You are officially my favourite photographers! Nouf


We had a great experience with the Barefoot family. The photoshoot was smooth, the photographers were lovely, and the pictures turned out to be beautiful. Thank you so much! Zein


We have used Barefoot’s service for three separate photo shoots and each time we got perfect pictures for our little family. With a baby it isn’t always easy, but the photographer is so patient. Moaza

Sharlene testimonial for Barefoot Dubai

Thank you so much for the lovely photograph print gift that you sent of the girls, it was a lovely gesture and a great surprise. All of the photos are gorgeous, I just have to find enough space on my walls for them. Sharlene

Samar Testimonial Barefoot Dubai

This is my third Barefoot experience and I am more than pleased and happy. People that see our photos keep asking: “who are the talented photographers behind these amazing shots?” Sapphire is really talented, cooperative and amazing with newborns. Be sure that this won’t be our last time with you. Samar

Rashi Testimonial Barefoot Dubai

Highly recommended! I was very happy with the pictures of the 100 days photoshoot! Rashi


Thank you so much, we are beyond thrilled with the photographs. You captured such stunning moments of us all together and were so relaxed during the whole process. We were going to hang one or two pictures on the walls, but I think it might end up being more like 9 or 10 because we just can’t choose which ones. Thank you for the professional manner in which everything was handled from booking the shoot to delivering the pictures on time. Sarah


They are gorgeous! We are absolutely thrilled with the way they came out. You captured our family perfectly and we love the way the photos project our love and joy, and the fun that we have together. We really can’t thank you enough for freezing these special moments that we spend together in our garden every day, and allowing us to cherish them over and over. We will definitely come back to you again for more stunning family images in the near future! Lejla


The photographs are lovely, thank you! Sapphire captured our farewell to Dubai beautifully and with such feeling.They will be a unique treasure for our family. Lauralynn


Thank you so much for the wonderful photos to mark my daughter’s senior year of high school in Dubai. They all turned out great and we appreciate your professionalism. Frances

Absolutely best of the best! I enjoyed the experience so very much. The Barefoot team is so highly personable, I felt as if I spent the morning with friends. They are second to none and I look forward to working with them again very, very soon! Joseph
